In spite of earthquakes and fires, Charleston has a smorgasbord of fine antebellum architecture. Born in 1781, Robert Mills, a native son of Charleston, was the first professionally trained architect in the United States. Besides designing private homes, bridges, hospitals, colleges and breakwaters, some of Mills' best-known works are in Washington, D.C. - the Washington Monument, the U.S. Treasury building and the Old Patent Office.
